is on capitol hill, martha. martha: it works both ways, mike. democrats clearly do not like the paul ryan house republican budget proposal. so what is their approach? >> reporter: well they are saying essentially that paul ryan is too extreme harsh. they continue calling for new tax revenue which we see in the patty murray budget blueprint. on budgetary issues, president obama talking to supporters last night sounded upbeat. >> when it comes to issues of the budget we've made progress in making sure that those at the very top are paying a greater share of what is required to run a government, fund base being research, move education forward. and so we've seen some progress. >> reporter: day three in a row, president obama coming to capitol hill today to meet with senate republicans and house democrats. democrats not liking so much some of the offers that he it making for a big deal and republicans want him to give up the idea of new taxes, martha. martha: boy, here we go. mike, thank you very much. bill: in meantime the 1st of april is the deadline for the senate to present a budget resolution
? we should make that promise, it is doable. even paul ryan whose budget did not balance the budget comes out with one that does. >> how to make it personal? joe made this case and we wrote articles about this. during the sequestration battle, obama gave his speech about the horrific sequestration and how bad it was. he was surrounded by the village people. he had a person behind him with a hard hat and make an native american. when john boehner came out he had a doomsday clock behind him, counting down the days to the sequester. he wanted to point the blame to obama. we should take credit for this. for the first time we're going to sort of cut spending at the federal level and we're going to talk a how that will help people in the long run. >> one quick thing. i ask people at cpac what they think about the second obama term and the real challenge for conservatives is you're dealing with a democratic senate and democratic white house. it is easy to propose a 10 year balanced budget like the conservatives are doing in the house but that is not going to be political reality in the sho

%, marco rubio got 23%. you look down the list there was paul ryan, chris christie, in other words the top recognized, dr. carson got a good chunk of change there, so we showed that indeed the party is revolving around these new leaders in the conservative movement. we also have a couple of different tents. we've got libertarians, tea party activist, establishment conservatives so the whole idea of the cpac is to bring the whole tent together. >> although, senator paul might object to the, close to isolationist which has never been among the three things that reagan conservatives have stood for, what do you think it says, if anything? is this just a party in search of itself? >> well, as someone who was part of the democratic leadership council in the early '90s on staff. >> moderate, trying to moderate the democratic party? >> a group of democrats who were trying to lead the party out of the wilderness at the time and successfully did so, what you see out of cpac as an outside observer it's a chance for people to introduce themselves. i'm not sure that anybody, any american walked away wi
in ten years, if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the shake of balance. >> a lot of the republican congressmen met with the president last week was oklahoma's james langford who joins us now. congressman, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> mike: when you met with the president this week you were one of the congressmen and you pressed him about a balanced budget, he didn't seem at that interested, did he? >> he did not. i asked him if we could find common ground, one of the key areas would be a balanced budget. we may disaagree on the method, but at least on the principle, our budget should balance. it was the crown jewel of the clinton administration that they could work with a republican house to finally come to a balanced budget and i don't understand how we couldn't do that now. he again reiterated did not feel that a balanced budget goal, and i couldn't imagine saying to the nation we're going i
